    From yesterday all Ercoles:
    Just got it from a long day, parent teacher conferences plus a "murder" investigation in my classroom. Life in the "hood":

    Just got back from seeing Frank. Changed some deets on the shirt, more tie space, wider and longer points, tighter cuffs and fuck me, placed two more suit orders. On the positive side he told me that I lost weight.

    ^^Ranger, why do my buttonholes always look slightly different from yours?

    The midnight one is an 8/9oz Minnis Fresco and the lighter one is a Scabal 8oz open weave of some sort. Here is a shot of the Scabal:

    Got some tailoring back from Ercole, did a nice job with tapering a jacket from the sides and chest as well as shortening the sleeves.

    Not sure PB, mine seem to be more open than your's are...Samira is his buttonhole guy, I'll ask her next time I'm in, have a fitting beginning of April.

    BTW, saw the "shirt factory" today...:) Very cool.

    A while ago Frank said he has two girls that do it, one that takes twice as long, but they look much better. I don't know.

    mmm, yea, but those are totally different than ours (at least mine). i saw one of those first hand...nice stuff. I showed him the pic of the collar in this thread, told him thats what I wanted...he was impressed how quickly you piced it, and said he was glad his works was appreciated.
